Welcome to Iron County

 
The office of Sheriff is a constitutionally created office with duties prescribed by the Utah legislature. The sheriff is the chief law enforcement officer for the county and is elected every four years.

The sheriff has countywide jurisdiction, but in practice, mostly concentrates activities outside city limits where municipal officers cannot operate.

The Sheriff has been charged with the responsibility to maintain the public peace and protecting life and property of all citizens of Iron County. Obligations and responsibilities have continuously grown throughout the years.

The duties of the Sheriff’s Office have increased as administrative procedures, court decisions, and requirements of the laws have brought about sophisticated and technical advancements to Law Enforcement.

The Sheriff’s Office is comprised of several divisions which perform the varied duties required by Utah Law, the Criminal Justice System, and the public need.
